More on Martha Stewart

Madeline Trait


As some of you may know I am a contributor on Martha Stewart and though my contributions can be sporadic it's fun to see them when they are live. The latest one is a super fun and easy DIY I did with Angie of Chairs and Cups {a super chic tabletop rental company!} on how to make rope containers for your summer parties. They really are perfect for picnics or outdoor festivities as they are light and super chic. {Other great edition to your table setting for summer are my lovely chipboard place cards and star cake toppers!}

Take a look at the entire DIY here.

DIY Washi Tape Vase

Madeline Trait

Washi tape is a big trend that is here to stay. It is a great way to instantly transform boxes, devices, walls, you name it. The best part is that it's not permanent so once you get tired of it you can pull it off and try something new.

Today I have a super easy DIY for you using the Washi to add some pizazz to your decor. I did this for a recent cake table display and am in love with the effect.  

Get the full instructions below!


Share your ideas and photos with us! Love to hear what you have done with Washi.
